Default UK Personal or Business account

What's the difference between personal and business UK Ebay account and how do I choose between them? I see sellers here offering both type.

Thanks!

Buissnes gives a higher limit (which you cant use anyway due mc011 risk).
Personal has lower limit and 1000 free listing items per month while buissnes has none.

Personal can be changed to buissnes but buissnes cant be changed to personal.

Just be warned that business accounts are subject to 36p per listing, higher seller fees, no free listing and no fvf discounts.

If you are small seller, go with a personal account and then let it build up over a few months. You will then have enough limits to be selling 20 items per week or more.

I'm a small seller so personal account is the way to go I guess!

Account sellers also offer business/personal Paypal, What's the difference?

I guess I should choose personal Ebay + Personal Paypal right?

It's cheaper selling electronics with an ebay shop on a business account. Better rates for fees than on personal account.

Yes, you don't get the £1 final value fee that ebay run every month, but if you sell high value items ebay will eventually upgrade your accoutn to business once you hit 30-40k in sales anyway.

Is the 1000 free listing available to store subscriber only or to all personal account? I was using the US ebay personal account, and the main reason to subscribe to ebay store for 60 dollars a month is that you get to list 1000 items for free.
